Non-Invasive Skin Treatment
A revolutionary new skincare treatment, microdermabrasion can remove various forms of skin imperfections with quick results and no downtime.
What is microdermabrasion?
It is a quick safe, effective form of exfoliation for all skin types and colours with no downtime and virtually no discomfort. It has been available in Europe since the late 1980s. Microdermabrasion uses inert corundum aluminum oxide minerals. Treated skin will be smoother, brighter, clearer, fresher and younger looking.
Who can benefit from it?
Men and women of all skin types or colours. Anyone with congested, flaky, dry, devitalized, thickened, blemished, dull, enlarged pores, fine facial lines and sun-damaged skin. It will produce a rejuvenated look and a refreshed feeling. Blotchiness, uneven skin tones and texture will also be improved.
What areas can be treated?
The most common areas are the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back, hands, knees and elbows. Any body area can be treated. Why microdermabrasion? Approximately every 28 days we create a new layer of skin. As new cells form they push their way to the surface, in turn pushing dead cells to settle on the surface. This can cause enlarged pores, clogged pores, a bumpy uneven texture, and a dull appearance. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance.
How long does it take?
The most common areas are the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back, hands, knees and elbows. Any body area can be treated. How many treatments do you need? This treatment is meant to be progressive, not aggressive. Generally, results are more noticeable after the 3rd treatment. Although after the first session the skin will appear fresher, cleaner, smoother and softer for some clients. Usually, treatments are performed every 7-10 days or every 2 weeks for a series of 10. Maintenance treatments are suggested once every 1 to 2 months.
Are there any side effects?
Since there is minimal discomfort and no healing time, normal activity can resume immediately after treatment. Experiencing a slight tingling and tighter skin, as if exposed to the wind or sun is normal. It may appear slightly flushed and this generally fades in 12-24 hours. It is very important immediately after treatment NOT TO EXERCISE, where perspiration is created. You will develop a stinging sensation that can take several hours to dissipate.
A quick way to Improve Skin. Many people are looking for a simple way to improve their skin without surgery or a facelift. Aging and sun-damaged skin may develop redness, blemishes, facial veins and pigment, deep wrinkles, cancerous or precancerous lesions or spotting. It's important to have a plastic surgeon or dermatologist look at your skin to evaluate your needs. This procedure uses a chemical solution, usually an acid, to ‘peel’ away the top layers of the epidermis to improve conditions such as acne, irregular pigmentation or wrinkles. Chemical peels have been in use for many years and are a highly popular way to improve the texture and look of skin. Over half a million people have a session performed each year. There are a wide variety of peels available, each with its own unique benefits as well as risks. This website is dedicated to providing people looking for better skin a place to become educated about the use of these peels, and whether they may be right for you. Note that patients taking Retin-a may be more sensitive and should notify their doctor.
